There is no Lightning Charger, the charger has a normal USB connection. There is a Lightning cable, however. And to be honest I love it that for once I don't have to think which side goes up (or sideways). If this standard is any good it will use the new USB Type C standard.
FWIW I rather pay a "premium" on a cable that will not fry my hardware and might burn my house down.
